Windows 7 keeps putting wireless printer back after deleting

I have an artisan 830 printer installed wireless and in device manager it lists the same printer but says copy next to it and is shaded meaning its not currently attached

I delete the printer and it goes away, but if i click refresh it comes straight back, i tried deleting both the copy and the artisan and then reinstalled the artisan but no matter how many times i delete the copy it returns after refreshing the page
